Creating a Connection Manager

Create a Connection Manager and define a grid, a cluster, a replicate set, or a server set as a connection unit, and create a service level agreement for the connection unit.

Prerequisites: For the Connection Manager, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires Informix 11.70.xC3 and the Connection Manager that is packaged with Informix 11.70.xC3 or with HCL Informix Client Software Development Kit (Client SDK) 3.70.xC3.

A Connection Manager provides load balancing and directs client connection requests to the appropriate server in a connection unit based on service level agreements (SLA). A connection unit is a collection of database servers in a grid, a high-availability cluster, a replicate set, or a server set. A single Connection Manager can manage multiple connection units.

You can create one Connection Manager for the database server that OAT is connected to by using OAT.

To create a Connection Manager:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Replication > Connection Manager.
  2. On the Actions menu, click Create.
  3. Complete the wizard.
